VIDGO TV Recomends: Arrow
One more week and the most watched American action TV series, Arrow, is going to make you swoon all over again.
What is it about Arrow that has fans so engaged? How has this captured the hearts of many viewers? Let’s get to know some of the reasons why Arrow is so well-liked.
- A very Human Superhero
Great TV shows almost universally feature highly relatable characters, and Arrow is no different. Superheroes can often come across as ridiculous and silly, but the Arrow writers have been able to depict Oliver Queen as a human being with heavier-than-elephant emotional baggage. People love the tortured superhero concept.
- Great TV Love Story
What is a superhero TV series without a bit of romance? Sparks fly between Oliver and Felicity, which goes a long way in making other people fall in love with them. People love this stuff. What starts as a friendship becomes more intense as the series progresses, and in the process, both Oliver and Felicity have brought out the best in each other.
- Super Friends
A superhero is only as good as his team. Oliver, Felicity, and Diggle have seen the worst and the best of times. The way Oliver evolved was largely due to the friendship and support given by Felicity and Diggle, especially after his return from Lian Yu in the first season.
Now that Team Arrow has expanded to include Laurel and Thea, the viewers are certainly getting the adrenaline rush for what is yet to come.
Arrow is based on a comic book, but even comic fans are in for surprises. It was never the intention of the show to copy the source material, which has worked out pretty well for the series so far. Sure the key characters are still here: Oliver Queen, Deathstroke, Black Canary, and other DC villains, but there are twists that will catch even the most loyal fans of guard.
- Bad-ass Stunts
Arrow could easily come off as a typical low budget show, but it somehow manages to deliver. Week after week, the stunts team, headed by James Bamford, surprises viewers with several sensational stunts. It’s pretty great to see men and women kicking so much butt.
- Strong female characters
Another element that keeps the show interesting is the inclusion of strong female characters. We’re aren’t just talking about sexy characters, although that’s also the case. The show features women with quick minds and emotional strength and serious fighting skills.
Arrow is one of the most popular TV shows on air, and it’s easy to understand why so many people stream Arrow and why it’s VIDGO TV recommend you binge-watch it. Arrow currently airs on The CW and is entering its 5th season in October of 2016.
